Even as it sprinkled rain on me as I loaded my bike in the truck, I was giddy with anticipation.
It feels like forever since I have been out on my bike, and finally, finally, I get the chance again!
I met Ray, Rob, Michael, and Toby at Granite Basin Lake this evening. It has rained the past few days, so we decided to stay on the DG. On the way up trail 349, my legs felt both weak, and tight. They were letting me know that I had neglected them. After the initial 2 mile climb, my quads started to lighten up and have some fun. We went up, around, down, over and through….we rode all over the place in the short amount of time we had, but what a blast!
Most people only get to do see this kind of beauty and have this much fun on vacation!
